Very entertaining and informative.
Scott and Crystal really love horror movies and it shows.m. Their conversations are very easy to listen to and they do their research. They don’t just limit themselves to western films, they’re really willing to watch films from anywhere in the world and analyse them appropriately! Highly recommend!
